Danailov-Stamatov Win Cavendish Pairs
As I have tried to explain, the difference was not really all that large. It was as if the winners playing with an average pair had beaten the best two pairs in the rest of the field by 30 IMPs over 42 boards. An impressive performance of course, but unexceptionable ...
